Detailed Description

If the CsNetwork library is built with the OpenSSL library then support will be available for the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and the Transport Layer Security (TLS) network protocols.

The supported versions of OpenSSL are 1.0.1g or later and the 1.1.x and 3.x series.

Enabling SSL Support

When building CopperSpice from source CMake will check if the OpenSSL development libraries and headers are available. If everything is found then CsNetwork will be built with OpenSSL support. At runtime, CsNetwork will dynamically load the OpenSSL libraries as required.

Installing OpenSSL

For information about how to install OpenSSL refer to the CS Overview documentation.
